PLEASE SIGN NONIMMIGRANT VISA REISSUANCE PETITION

I encourage you to sign a petition urging the Obama Administration to reinstate reissuance of nonimmigrant visas within the USA, a practice that was discontinued in 2004.  If the petition receives 100,000 on-line signatures by February 23, the Administration has promised to review it, send it to the appropriate policy experts in the administration, and issue an official response.

How should the foreign person employee of a U.S. person be identified in the TAA or MLA? Who should sign the DSP-83 for the transfer of U.S. classified information?
